I use to install alarm systems for a shop back in the 1990s. I've installed hundreds of remote starts. While you can technically get it to work on a manual, I would not suggest it. We had a policy not to do it. One day maybe next week maybe 5 years from now, you'll leave it in gear and that won't end well.

Run outside, crank it while in gear & see for yourself. Then you'll understand why we suggest not doing it.

The car is now running, in gear. Its gonna move & thats not good.

a manual car that hasn't been tampered with shouldn't start unless the clutch is depressed

That's what you have to do when installing on a manual, bypass the clutch. The remote start "thinks" the clutch is pressed. Its been a LONG time since I've done one but is as simple as grounding a safety wire from the remote start.

At that point, leave it in gear, crank her up and off she goes...lol...or not lol. Depends on who's car it is.

If you go ahead and choose NOT TO LISTEN to the advice, please get real good quality photos to post afterwards.

Yes, it's very easy to bupass the "neutral" safety switch on the clutch pedal. I'd discourage anyone from installing a remote start on a clutch equipped vehicle. Unless you live in the Artic circle and wish to have a warm and toasty car to step into, it's not worth the risk of forgetting to put the car in neutral each night with the saftey switch bypassed.

Just thinking. (I wouldn't recommend remote start on a manual)

But if you leave it in gear and have the parking brake on. Wouldn't it stall itself out?

Unless it's on flat ground and you don't use the ebrake, I've forgotten a few times.

Once I let my friend practice driving stick in my car. In an empty parking lot. I told him to put it in 1st and then dump the clutch... It grabbed... Imagine that but without you inside the car to stop it.

Lmao a friend of mine in a 350z has a remote start and just like 3 weeks ago he was inside and decided to turn on the car so the AC can circulate and cool the car before he got dressed.....all he heard was his car turn on....two seconds later his car was through his front 3ft high brick and metal fence and the car is now ruined....moral of the story....dont do it on a manual lol

For some reason manuals are easy to stall on the street, but when you start it up remotely even with the ebrake on it will find a way to buck to life.
